FAIRFIELD (CBS13) — Travis Air Force Base is under a security alert due to a “real world security incident.”

The Air Force base had a training exercise planned for Wednesday and Thursday, but this is not related to it.

The public is being asked to stay away from the base while emergency responders do their job.

Fairfield Police say they are not responding to the incident and are deferring to the base.
